"Proud Yorkshire company" Lindum turf a hit at Chelsea

Seven gold medal winning gardens at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show, showcased products from turf specialist Lindum.  Included in the medals was Welcome to Yorkshire’s "Le Jardin de Yorkshire" – a silver gilt winner.

Welcome to Yorkshire CEO Gary Verity said: "It is brilliant that Lindum, a proud Yorkshire company, has been part of so many wins at Chelsea this year. They were a big part of our Jardin de Yorkshire garden, attracting lots of public attention and critical acclaim for their wild flower meadow. This success secures another great Yorkshire moment at Chelsea Flower Show for 2013."

Lindum MD Stephen Fell said:  "It’s fantastic that so many medal winning gardens chose our specialist turf in their garden design. We have a long history of working with designers at Chelsea and for seven of them to win Gold using our range of turf products is an amazing success."

Lindum’s development of Grassfelt, a soil-less grass growing in a strong felt base, was first recognised by Andy Sturgeon several years ago when he wanted bold expanses of lawn in one piece.  This year, the Brewin Dolphin garden, the East Village Garden, the 9 Billion Conversation Garden, and the First Touch Garden, all used Grassfelt.

The sedums grown in Lindum’s SedumPlus green roof mats were used in An Alcove (Tokonma) Garden, a gold medal winner and the best artisan garden.

In addition to An Alcove (Tokonma) Garden and RBC Blue Water Roof Garden, Lindum supplied a range of turf to gold medal winning gardens including The 9 Billion Conversation Garden, East Village Garden, The Brewin Dolphin Garden, First Touch Garden and Nong Nooch Tropical Botanical Garden. Products were supplied to silver gilt winners Le Jardin de Yorkshire, and Topiary Arts.
